Like any other appliance or tool, there are various models of AEDs with various specs. Like most things, the more bells and whistles, the costlier the AED becomes. However, all AEDs come with the most important features – battery, defibrillator pads, and the ability to assess the victim and deliver a life-saving shock, if needed. Depending on the age of your children, you may want to consider pediatric pads too. That said, AEDs can retail for anywhere between $1,100 – $2,500.
However, there is more to just the initial price tag when purchasing an AED. You will need a place to store the AED. You will also need to replace the pads and battery over time.
